SEATTLE —

The state Liquor Control Board holds the second of a series of forums on legal marijuana sales Thursday night at Seattle City Hall.

Hundreds of people attended the first forum Tuesday night in Olympia. Many said they wanted licenses to grow, process or sell marijuana in what they called a new cottage industry in the state. Many also said people convicted of marijuana crimes shouldn't be disqualified.

The liquor board is drafting rules to implement Initiative 502, which was approved in November by voters. It legalizes the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana and calls for state-licensed marijuana growers, processers and retail stores.

More public forums are scheduled Feb. 7 in Vancouver, Feb. 12 in Spokane, Feb. 19 in Mount Vernon and Feb. 21 in Yakima.
